Ecofit Energy and Giacomini were selected by Lorne Stewart to design and install the Underfloor Heating system at Raglan Primary School in Gwent.  The new school building has a total floor area of 1,600m2, with underfloor heating circuits laid throughout the school rooms. 230v electrically actuated manifolds are linked directly to the schools energy management system, providing individual room temperature control, and the system was laid on high efficiency PIR insulation, also installed by Ecofit Energy Systems.

The Giacomini Tacker Sheet system with sealed PE vapour barrier was installed on 25mm Celotex insulation, and all set within the new 80mm screed floor. Giacomini standard distribution manifolds, 230v actuator heads, and 16mm PE-X underfloor heating pipework were selected for the installation, and the project was completed in accordance with the phased programme set by Morgan Sindall.

Giacomini packaged underfloor system was selected for this project as the pipework system is covered by the manufacturer’s 50 year guarantee and the local Giacomini Technical Sales office offers excellent support and technical backup.
